Other followers were also quick to express their approval – both for the cute pup and for the Earl's choice of TV show, as the American sitcom Will & Grace played on a screen in the background.

Charles shared the sweet new video to Twitter

"I’m not sure what I love more: this adorable puppy proudly adding to his slipper collection, or that you’re watching Will & Grace! OK, the puppy wins," wrote one fan, to which Charles responded: "Best show ever."

"Awww bless him he's so cute," added another follower, while a third responded with a laughing emoji as they wrote: "No slippers are safe in our house."

Charles and his family have quite the menagerie at their Northamptonshire estate.
